Here in Eastern Montana the Walleye is King. But, as usual, I don't follow the crowd. I prefer fishing for perch. There's a little reservoir an hour from home where I can catch all I care to fillet in a day. While I watch all the others trying for one or two walleyes a day I haul in 60 to 80 nice perch and go home with plenty. We put 300 or so in the freezer each summer to last us over the winter and still have plenty to give away. The pond has so many that MFW&P traps them to transfer to other locations so I'm helping keep them from overpopulating. Many are nice 10 to 11 1/2 inchers. Anything small and dark-colored works. Worms with a Crappie Nibble on the hooks tip work well, also. But my favorite is a small Berkley Atomic Tube, usually a dark green. My favorite tackle is an Ultra-Light Ugly Stick with a Pflueger Ultra-Light and 4# line. It'll even handle the occasional Northern Pike if it isn't too big. Twitch just over the weed tops and it's "fish on". BTW, smaller fish have less contaminants so are healthier to eat. And the perch is one tasty fish.
